It's 9AM in LA, which means only one thing—the first sales on Gilt Fuse have officially started. In addition to Modern Amusement, which we mentioned would be kicking off the proceedings today, pieces from Generra and Kova & T have also been added to the mix. Items seem to skew towards the basic—we spotted a lot of tees, t-shirt dresses and tanks—with some more fun pieces thrown in, like a few ruffly Modern Amusement dresses for just over $100, Kova & T's signature lace leggings and leatheresque pencil skirts for $68 and $88, respectively, and a navy short-sleeved shift dress with a pleated neckline by Generra for $68. In fact, there's very little for over $100, even though most pieces retailed for $150-$200+ to start.
Also worth noting is that an additional sale has been added this week—Kelsi Dagger, a shoe label that will be on site tomorrow. The only bad news? No menswear to be seen—and, as Racked NY reports, there are no plans to start carrying it in the near future.
